The Children's Table

If I had to choose one children's item that we cant live without, it would be our kids table and chair set. We have it set up in the living room in lieu of a traditional coffee table and it is always in use. My oldest uses it for legos, playing, coloring, reading and the twins also sit there with her to share a snack. There are so many great options for children’s table and chair sets, one to fit every space and budget. For my home I chose this one from allmodern.com. They ship to Canada and you see the import fee and duties before you pay, which is always a plus for Canadian shoppers (they also have very reasonable shipping rates). With three kids, I was specifically looking for one with 3 or more chairs, which is hard to find. I like this set because it takes up very little floor space, it’s a neutral color, comes with four stools and can grow with my kids since it is higher than many kids tables. Here are some of my favorites for every budget

Under $50

                                                                     IKEA Latt 

Obviously the best part is the price! At $24.99 it's perfect even to purchase as a second set for grandma’s house. Apart from the amazing price, the best part about this set is how easy it is to customize. It comes in unfinished wood which makes is super easy to paint whatever color you want, check out some of my favorite LATT hacks below-



 Under $150

P'kolino Little Ones table and chair set. I like this set because it is colorful and very high quality. Buy it here


Guidecraft Nordic Kids 5 piece set, this is the one I have and I love it. Buy it here


Under $500

Sodura Aero 3 Peice set. If budget was no object, I would definitely get this one. I love the modern and slightly whimsical design. Buy it here




Dana from House*tweaking posted this great table and chairs she bought at overstock.com. It did not come as a set, she bought the table and two chairs separately, here and here. I just love the large size of the solid oak table and the white wire baby bertoia chairs are a timeless classic. Both are stylish and very durable. This goes to show that you don't have to buy a whole matching set, the right mix looks amazing. The table is actually a coffee table so once the kids get older it can be used as one. 

Do you have any other recommendations? Which are your favorite?
